We only stopped here because we had a coupon! Always driven by the place, but this time, we made a point of checking it out. If you are staying in Sooke, it is just that bit too far to drive out there for a meal....More

Very limited vegetarian choices, and what they offer is “typical”. I opted for the veggie burger, which was (way) overly seasoned with cumin. I like cumin, but not when it’s all I can taste. Still, the beer is good, the nachos are delicious, and nothing...More

We love the reasonable prices, great food, and good selection of beers all in an authentic old pub atmosphere. The 17 Mile House Pub is right on the side of the road leading to Sooke and is well worth the visit.
